Snorkel Tour with Scuba Iceland


Iceland is full of surprises.

It seems in every direction you point to leads to something different! However, some paths are beaten and some paths are reserved for the true adventurer. If you dare, go snorkeling in the arctic waters of Silfra, the crack separating the North American and European continents.

It might sound really extreme and very cold, but we promise it will be worth it. After all, where else can you swim between two continents?

Scuba Iceland is the perfect option to take this tour.

They’ll pick you up right at the front door, and drive you to Þingvellir National Park where you’ll be diving with a small group. Before that, you will receive an introduction to the Continental plates and the nature in the park. Afterwards, the group will be driven down to Silfra to start preparing for the water.

You will learn how to wear the dry suit and use all of the equipment, and don’t worry about getting wet: this kind of suit will protect you from the water… well, almost all the way. There is a chance that you will get a little wet. We must say, suiting up is not the most comfortable part of the tour, but at least it will be funny.

If you’re concerned about being a swimmer or not, don’t be. You don’t need to be a professional as the dry suit will keep you floating from the moment you jump into the water.

All your worries will disappear once you’re in the water. The views are even better than the photos. It will look like a science fiction movie. You won’t believe how marvelous this world can be. The water is totally clear, so you can appreciate the plates in all of their glory and all of the nature in the deep.

You will be swimming and soaking in the water for approximately 25 minutes. If you decide to take this tour, book with Scuba Iceland, as they are amazing with the group. You will always feel safe.

Will you get cold? Of course you will, especially your hands and face.

Is it worth it, though? Totally! You MUST do it.

A good piece of advice for taking the tour? Wear really warm socks.

Whale Watching with Elding

One of the most amazing things about Iceland is the marine life, and by this, we’re really talking about the whales. If you’re walking through the Old Harbor, why not stop and go on a whale watching tour?

We recommend the classic whale watching tour with Elding.


You’ll search for 2 hours to see these rare animals in their natural environment. Traveling by boat is a part of the wonder of this tour, as the view is stunning and the sensation of the waves is very special.

Oh yeah, and we too our 6 year old McDonalds burger with us sightseeing as Reykjavik was just stunning that day. Don’t worry, he was safely inside when we were out on the water.


Once you are on the boat, you will notice the tour staff has a vast knowledge of the whales and other sea life. You will learn about the nature in the ocean in addition to other facts about Iceland.

While you are searching for the whales it might get really cold and windy, but don’t worry: Elding will offer you one of their special jumpers to keep you warm.


Seeing any kind of whale or dolphin will be really exciting. Everyone will start taking pictures, but a secret tip is to simply just enjoy. Once they start to show up you will be captivated by their presence. Be present with it! Try to really take in what you are seeing. They can disappear very quickly so it is best to appreciate them first hand, rather than later when you are looking at your pictures.


If you feel sick, don’t worry about telling someone in the staff. They will help you immediately.

You should know that it is not always certain that you will see these magnificent sea animals, as their nature is just wild. Sometimes it becomes difficult due to the seasons of the sea and environment factors. Regardless, it will be a really cool experience.
